On Friday, January 19, Ukrainian intelligence attacked an oil depot in the Bryansk region of Russia with drones. Instead, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported on the work of air defense

This was reported by Ukrainska Pravda, Hromadske, and Liga.net, citing their own intelligence sources.

It is noted that it was a new special operation of the Intelligence Service of Ukraine, and hits were recorded at the oil depot. The sources add that there is significant damage to the military facility.

"Putin has concentrated most of his electronic warfare and air defense assets in the Ukrainian occupied territories, and military facilities in Russia will continue to be targeted," the intelligence source said.

Alexander Bogomaz, a governor of the Bryansk region, earlier wrote about this on Telegram.

It is noted that Russian troops tried to use an electronic warfare system, but when the air target was destroyed, the ammunition was dropped on the territory of the Klintsy oil depot.

According to preliminary information, there were no casualties. At the same time, the reservoirs are on fire. Fire and rescue services are currently working at the scene, with 13 fire trucks involved.

Meanwhile, the Russian Defense Ministry claims that at about 6:40 a.m., Russian air defense destroyed a drone over the territory of the Bryansk region.

Later, the Moscow Railroad wrote that a fire train had arrived to help extinguish the tanks at the oil depot. It contains 120 tons of water and 5 tons of foaming agent.

Ukraine's Defense Intelligence responds

Andriy Yusov, a representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine, commented on the strikes on the oil depot on the United News telethon.

“The commotion was great, and such incidents regularly occur at military facilities on the territory of the aggressor state. When such incidents target an oil depot, crucial for supplying the occupying corps with fuels and lubricants, it disrupts logistics for the occupiers, their supply schedules," the statement said.

According to him, this creates additional opportunities, provides a margin of time, and expands the maneuvering space for Ukrainian defenders.

  • On the morning of January 18, the governor of the Belgorod region of Russia, Vyacheslav Gladkov, announced that ten missiles had allegedly attacked the region. According to him, all of them were shot down, one person was injured, and destruction was recorded.
